    So as of today how much do you owe the SnapOn/Mac/Matco/Cornwell dealer? Just made another payment today.... I'm down to $250 with Mr. Snap-On...:tongue1:

    Same as it's always been, $0. I never have been one to carry debt on much of anything, and definitely not tools. :D

    Huh? I didn't know they have payment plans or such... Never bought anything from Snap-on or Matco or any of the other guys. Craftsman, Stanley and Great Neck is all I got (I'm sooo cheap).

    Sometimes you do what you have to. There was a time or two that I needed $500 worth of tools to get an upcoming job done, but had $300 available to spend.

    You an I have talked about credit before, mainly with trucks. I like running small credit lines, helps my credit score.

    Oh yeah, easy plans too. A 5 week plan has 0 percent interest, no paperwork to fill out either. They make it super easy to walk out with twice as much tools as you payed for. They have to though, the big names are flat out expensive and sometimes thats the only way you can afford the big stuff.

    I think my matco is at $500 today, which is a truck account, no interest, I pay $75 a week, but am constantly buying stuff, and snap-on is $400, I pay $20 a week, Snap on was $0, but he had some promo stuff I couldn't resist.

    Thats what gets me everytime. He gets something on special that catches my eye that I had planned on getting one day and say "yeah, but I could get it now and make a couple of payments and get the special price."

    All I get is a receipt for what ever I bought or how much I payed and how much is left on my account.

    Originally, he came out to my ranch, I picked out $500 worth of stuff, gave him a check for $250. He took down my address and phone number and said he'd be back in a week and I could make payments once a week.

    I still owe $600 on the Matco cart that I ordered 5 weeks ago. It should be here by the end of the month. It sucks when you don't work on cars for a living for 10 years and still can't stay off the trucks. Harbor Freight and Northern will only take you so far.:rolleyes:

    $370 to Matco, $200 to Mac, and $0 to Snap On. Matco hasn't been below $300 for about 4 months. I really need to just get it down to nothing before I buy more.

    My 3/8" Air Ratchet took a crap a few days ago. No more torque. Second IR Composite Air Ratchet, second one to do it. I want the Mac one with the captive flat head, but $275 is a bit salty for a tool I very rarely use.
